Albright’s All Natural Raw Dog Food Review


Albright’s has been in business for more than 30 years. They sell and produce food for people as Albright’s Meats & Deli. Now they produce raw, synthetic-free dog food. Lee and Karen Albright implemented this.

Albright’s produces a single line of raw food. A second line of prey model foods for dogs has been added.

The company is based in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It appears they have their own production facility. Distributors throughout the US sell their products. They are also sold by selected retailers and vendors.
For our Albright’s dog food review, we’ll look at the food ingredient quality and safety of each line of food. Our dog food reviews are based on these criteria.


Albright’s All Natural Raw is a low risk dog food by our criteria. There are 7 recipes. They average 51% protein and 6% carbohydrate as calculated on a dry matter basis. 

This line has 5 single protein recipes (including bone and organ meats). There are 2 recipes with 2 proteins. One of them is a puppy recipe. They’re made with whole food ingredients. This balances recipes to AAFCO standards. There are no added vitamins or minerals needed. This means better ingredients. They don’t need fortifying. The recipes also have a lower percentage of fat than protein, which is desirable in a raw food. 

Albright’s states that they don’t use fillers or grains. This is evident from the low carbohydrate count. Their website provides a glossary of their ingredients. They also list the vitamins and minerals provided by each. And they provide the sources. They don’t use preservatives as their products are sold frozen.

These are raw foods that don’t involve a heating process. There are no points deducted for light processing.

On the safety side, the only concern is the use of kale within the top 5 ingredients of most recipes. Kale is a crop known for high pesticide/herbicide residues. Pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers pose a significant health risk. This affects plants, animals and soils. Foods with the most residue get penalized. This includes crops known to be spray-dried with glyphosate. Organic ingredients would be a better option. That eliminates the pesticide and GMO risk in these foods.

It’s worth noting that sunflower oil is in these recipes. This is a highly processed, inflammatory oil. It can cause systemic and gut inflammation. Foods lose points for using it. However, Albright’s uses a cold-pressed high oleic sunflower oil. This is a preferable choice. It has minimal processing involving heat. It’s very low in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). These are high in inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids. That can lead to oxidative stress.

Albright’s obtains its proteins from the US and Canada. They’re from USDA-certified facilities. Most proteins are from Indiana and midwest locations. Some are from the western US or Canada. 

Albright’s now offers a line of Prey Model Raw. It has Rabbit and Duck Recipes. They also offer chubs of beef or lamb green tripe. 

Albright’s doesn’t state the omega-6:omega-3 ratio in their recipes. This is true of most companies. It’s a concern because AAFCO allows a very inflammatory ratio of 30:1. Diets rich in omega-6 fats can cause chronic inflammation.

Evaluation Criteria

We evaluate and score dog foods based on two criteria:

Are the Ingredients High Quality?

Here are some common low-quality ingredients or markers we look for:

  • Is there excessive carbohydrate content, which can cause gut imbalances?
  • Does the food contain unnamed proteins, which are low quality?
  • Does the food use cellulose (wood pulp) as a source of fiber instead of real food?
  • Are there excessive vitamins and minerals added in place of real food nutrition?
  • Are there excessive added amino acids or plant proteins instead of expensive meat protein?
  • Does the food contain inflammatory processed seed oils?

How Safe Are the Ingredients?

Many ingredients come from unhealthy, inflammatory sources or are full of pesticides so we look for:

  • How processed is the food?
  • Does the food contain known genetically modified foods?
  • Does the food contain ingredients known to be high in pesticides?
  • Does the food contain natural flavor, which are often MSG or animal digest?
  • Does the food contain rice, which is high in arsenic?

Each food is objectively evaluated by these criteria and a score is assigned using the average of ingredient quality and safety. This is NOT a paid list and there are no affiliate links. Dogs Naturally has partnered with to make sure dog owners have unbiased, objective criteria to help them choose the best dog food on the market. You can view the full Evaluation Criteria at
